Week 2 of the NFL preseason will kick off on Thursday when the Chicago Bears visit the Seattle Seahawks at Lumen Field. Kickoff is scheduled for 8 p.m. ET and NFL DFS players will try to predict how playing time will be allotted with roster cuts looming. Drew Lock and Geno Smith are locked in a battle to become the Seattle starting quarterback, but Lock won’t be available for your NFL DFS lineups on Thursday after he tested positive for COVID-19.
The Bears played Justin Fields for three series in the first preseason game and Chicago’s starters are expected to see limited reps if they’re among your NFL DFS picks. Is that enough to warrant putting any of them in your Seahawks vs. Bears DFS lineups or should you look elsewhere in the NFL DFS player pool?

Top NFL DFS picks for Seahawks vs. Bears
For Bears vs. Seahawks on Thursday, where every player on DraftKings is priced at $11,400 and every player on FanDuel is $12,000, we can tell you one of White’s top picks is Bears quarterback Trevor Siemian. Known most prominently for his time as the starting quarterback in Denver, Siemian has also started games for the Jets and Saints.
In 2021, he made four starts in relief of Jameis Winston and threw for 1,154 yards and 11 touchdowns with just three interceptions. In his career, he’s thrown for 6,843 yards and 41 touchdowns with 27 interceptions and should see plenty of playing time on Thursday as the clear frontrunner to back up Justin Fields.
Gibbs NFL DFS strategy also includes rostering Seahawks running back DeeJay Dallas. The Miami product was a fourth-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft who has played in 29 games over his two-year NFL career.
Dallas has rushed 67 times for 246 yards and four touchdowns while also catching 38 passes for 244 yards and a score. He’s also a return specialist and will try to prove he deserves a spot on the roster. See who else to include on your rosters here.
